Hibiscus


A week ago I posted some photos of some young ducklings posing for photos at the Japanese Friendship Garden.  I totally forgot that I also had these photos of the Chinese Hibiscus in full bloom.  There were loads of blooms on the plants so I took a few shots.


Wouldn't a handful of these lovely blooms make a gorgeous bouquet?

I have a new post on Sharon's Sojourns today.  I'm talking a walk through a very quiet Tuscan village.

absolutely beautiful! Amazing how there isn't a single ant or aphid on them, too!

I love that top photo -- really nice how you got the whole flower in focus. That's a pretty wide bloom!

So exotic! They would make a pretty bunch but I find once cut they don't last too long so I enjoy mine on the bush now ☺ beautiful images Sharon.
